I really don’t like complicated things when it comes to cooking. The simpler the better is my cooking motto 😉 For years my idea of baking would be a “mix-it all-in- bowl” kind of cake and it took me a long time to build up the courage to bake something as complicated as cookies!
I have been wanting to make mayonnaise for a while. For starters, the taste is, in my opinion, so much better than the store bought version. And also, when looking at the ingredient list, it has to be much cheaper to make than to buy.
A few months back, Dear Husband made mayonnaise for the first time and it was really good. He claimed that it was really easier, but skeptical as I am to these kinds of things, I didn’t believe him. Problem came when a few weeks back he went out of the country and we ran out…. The kids left me no choice and I tried. And it was easy. Really easy. Even “mix-it-all-in-one-bowl” kind of easy.
So that’s the story. Here is the recipe. Now go make some mayonnaise of your own!
A jar of Homemade Mayonnaise (Cost: About NIS 4/ USD 1)
2 egg yolks
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
4 teaspoons Apple Vinegar
½ teaspoon sea salt
About 300 ml vegetable oil (I use Canola)
Combine the egg yolks, mustard, vinegar and salt in a bowl and mix it all together for about half a minute using an electric hand mixer. Start adding the oil slowly in a thin stream, while continuing to mix all the time, until the mayonnaise gets the right thick consistency and color.
Really good in potato, tuna or egg salad, in salad dressings and as a spread in a sandwich.
